Anneliese Dodds responds to news that the furlough scheme has been extended

Anneliese Dodds MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, responding to the news that the furlough scheme has been extended to April 2021, said:

“Once again the Chancellor has waited until the last possible minute to act, leaving businesses in the dark with less than 24 hours before they have to issue redundancy notices.

“Rishi Sunak’s irresponsible, last-minute decision-making has left the UK with the worst recession of any major economy.”
